Big prizes are up for grabs next year at the Porcupine Freedom Festival. First I wanted to say, this was my 4th year at Porcfest and I have to say the best one yet. I see signs of a tipping point coming very soon. I speak and sell my books at liberty festivals all over the country and have been to pretty much all of them worth going to. Almost all of them are convention style events, but Porcfest is very different. Although it has structure and speakers like convention style events, it is much more free flowing and relaxed.
If you have ever been on a cruise, it has a very similar feeling to Porcfest. Like a cruise there is simply too many great events to go to them all. When you finish the event you need a vacation from your vacation. It has quickly overtaken all freedom-oriented events in the country to be the granddaddy of all liberty events.
Many events preach the free market but are hamstringed by the local regulations. Porcfest is the only festival I can think of that has a truly working free market. All the vendors working with out licenses or inspections. One thing I noticed over the years is most of these vendors are running on a shoestring budget. To help these brave but broke activists a few friends and myself have created a contest for next years event.
I know it's 340 days away, but next Porcfest will be the best one yet. To celebrate 10 years of awesomeness, we are going BIG. I just wrapped up a huge sponsor for our new liberty scholarship/investment show. Basically I am running an event called "The Agorist Pitch" Agorist business ideas will compete for Gold, Bitcoins and silver. So far the winning business ideas win some major funding to help their business idea become reality. So far 1st place is an ounce of gold, second place is $1000 of Bitcoins and 3rd is $500 of silver. I hope to make the prizes even larger next by the time of the contest.
(Not actual coins to be awarded at contest)
Contestants will be given 3-5 minutes to pitch their business and the crowd and a panel of three donors will judge who gets the money. A person can no longer say they can’t afford to go to Porcfest when they can win their expenses. Start working on your pitch and presentations now folks, because your competition is.
Good Luck and Good Hunting,
